Recreational comedy

A whole new season of laughter begins Sunday, Sept. 15, for the ComedySportz Rec League. The semi-annual gathering of improvisers-in-training involves weekly matches akin to the professional ComedySportz shows Milwaukeeans have been embracing for nearly 30 years.

It costs the public nothing to attend the Sunday afternoon contests at ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St.

Teams pay $350 each to play in the league. Anyone who has had a couple of ComedySportz workshops (101 and 102) is eligible to play. Registration begins at 10 a.m. Sunday with a two-hour workshop that finishes just in time to catch the Packers game.
